Scholarship to Support Undergraduate Education
(up to $1,500)
Thanks to the generous support of alumni donors, we are able to offer various scholarships and awards to economics students, celebrating their numerous and diverse accomplishments.
These scholarships are for economics students with unmet financial need to help support their education, either alleviating existing financial costs of study or providing funding towards additional academic experiences. These grants supplement other funding students may receive for costs associated with their undergraduate education. The funds are distributed in a single lump sum into the student’s University account.
Awardees are selected by the Director of Undergraduate Studies and the Undergraduate Studies Staff, in consultation with additional campus staff and faculty. Application materials must be completed in full and submitted by the due date for consideration, and the materials of all applicants meeting the eligibility requirements will be reviewed.
Eligibility: A currently declared economics student who has completed at least one full-time semester at UIUC with unmet financial need, who demonstrates that the funds would go to support general educational attainment, alleviate some financial burden, and/or provide funding assistance towards an additional academic experience.
Application: Only submissions only. Submit an Economics Department Scholarship Form, a resume/CV, and two essays of 100- 500 words each. Essay 1: Describe how your experience as an Economics Major informs your life’s journey; Essay 2: Describe how this scholarship will help advance your education.
